This file lists the major changes between versions. For a more detailed list
of every change, see the Git log.
+ * If the user explicitly specified an option for the special 'test' flag,
+ this would override the build_options magic. This is now fixed.
+ * Certain pkg_ functions are no longer skipped for 0-based EAPIs, to work
+ around badly behaving Gentoo ebuilds.
+ * If 'cave show' displays a masked package, it will now pick a version that
